Free "Films on the Beach" [fr]
Films on the Beach is a project inspired by New York’s Films on the Green Festival. In 2008 the Cultural Services of the French Embassy based in New York City organized its first edition of Films on the Green in collaboration with the City of New York Parks & Recreation.
The festival was an immediate success providing residents of the big apple free access to French films throughout the summer.
The Cultural Services at the French General Consulate in Miami, in partnership with Miami Beach Arts in the Parks, is proud to announce the launch of its very own Miami Beach version.
For the first edition of "Films on the Beach", the festival has screened two vintage classics of French cinema in collaboration with Tigertail Production’s FLA-FRA Festival.
On May 8 and 15, 2014 it is followed by two recent French films, both starring feline characters.
The screenings will take place at New Worls Symphony SoundScape’s 7,000-square-foot projection.
Films will be shown in French with English subtitles.
The event is open to the public.
